Size does matter when it comes to easyJet cabin baggage rules. Don’t get caught out at the boarding gate and follow these top tips.
1. Buy a new bag
2. Keep calm and carry on using your old bag
3. Pack light
4. Check in your bag
5. Become a member
Join the easyJet Plus scheme, buy a FLEXI fare, or splash out a few quid on an Upfront or Extra Legroom seat, and you can bring on an additional under seat bag no bigger than 45x36x20cm. With Speedy Boarding you'll also have first dibs at that oh-so valuable overhead locker space, and avoid ugly scenes in the rush for the cheap seats. But that’s all part of the fun of budget air travel, isn’t it?
6. Wear your luggage
7. Use another airline
If you object to this clampdown on your personal freedom, then make a stand and fly with a different airline. There may well be a choice of carriers operating the route. Of course, this may mean higher prices, or having to check in your bag. EasyJet’s allowance is pretty generous - there's no weight limit on hand baggage. Some airlines, such as WizzAir, have for a while now charged for anything larger than a laptop or a handbag.
